ACKERMAN, Miss. (WTVA) - Choctaw County is mourning the loss of a young student, gone too soon.
Moe Hardin died early Tuesday morning from complications with his liver transplant.
His peers and coaches at Choctaw County High School remember him as a light among others.
"Moe Hardin was a coach's dream because he took care of his business every single day," said Ben Ashley.
Grieving counselors were on campus to help students cope with this loss.
"December 17th - one of the healthiest kids you could have seen and today we're talking about his memory," Ashley explained.
A close friend says Hardin aspired to play football in college and had the ability to do so.
"He was the same on the football field as he was on the baseball field. He was quiet but a beast," said Brice Utley. "I've known Moe my whole life and he just brought love and kindness to everyone."
Hardin's funeral plans are still in progress.
